Poetry : Don Wentworth

Slipping Anger’s Knot

Despite Baudelaire
or, perhaps, because of him,
we know our hearts are
not leased by others,
only ourselves.







Before literally becoming a new yinzer, Don Wentworth cut his lyrical teeth on the hardscrabble Jersey shore. He is the author of two ancient chapbooks, Tenpenny Stamens and The Nostalgia Papers, and his work has appeared in publications as diverse as Bear Creek Haiku, Beatniks from Space, and Rolling Stone. Don is the editor of the Lilliput Review, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2009.
